I’m only five weeks away from my delivery date now! That means all kinds of wonderful things, like that the number of times I’ll have to wear my only two pairs of pants that fit me is dwindling. I’m so sick of these pants. Also, it means that I can probably get away with only buying one more big bottle of Tums to last me the rest of the pregnancy. Woohoo!
Entering the Labor and Delivery Red Zone also means I have to get serious about prepping for baby to come home with us. I’ve been pretty lax about shopping, decorating and organizing baby stuff up until now because the end seemed like a long way off. But now that I’m just over a month out, my inner project manager is starting to scream “Deadline! Deadline! Make lists! Create spreadsheets! Organize, organize, organize!”. As a result, I’ve been shopping cleaning, decorating and laundry-ing my days away.
Here’s a list of things I’m doing in these last weeks to get ready for possible labor (even us scheduled c-section moms need to think about that), and bringing home baby!
